For those who love the beauty of glass, this winter Portland Community College will offer a one-day introductory class focused on using Borosilicate glass to make unique works of art.
The non-credit course, Borosilicate: Introduction, features instructor Lea Pellegrini, who will demonstrate studio safety, proper use of a torch and basic forming techniques. Projects will include introduction to sculptures. Borosilicate is a type of glass that can withstand high temperatures. It is used in Pyrex products.
The one-day class will meet from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., Monday, Jan. 7, at Aquila Art Glass, 1628 N. Columbia Blvd., Unit A. Cost is $124. For more information, contact PCC’s Community Education office at (503) 978-5143.
